Owens Hardware has signed a long-term lease to open a 9,600 square foot store at 2462 Wycliff Road in Lake Boone Shopping Center. Slated to open in the spring/summer of 2024, this will be the sixth location for Owens Hardware, a family-owned home improvement retailer whose relationship with Ace Hardware provides national chain buying power, access to hundreds of thousands of products, and premium merchandise brands like Craftsman, Scotts, Benjamin Moore, EGO, Weber, Stihl, Yeti and others. Residents and shoppers can look forward to access to top national brands and attentive customer service right in the heart of the west Raleigh community.

Owner-operator Paul Owens says he is excited and looking forward to growing the business. “When the opportunity came up to open a new store in our backyard, we jumped on it. We are confident that this expansion will not only benefit our business, but also give us more opportunities to give back to the community we grew up in. We want our customer’s shopping experience to be elevated and enjoyable. We plan to offer a large gift section, as well as the traditional items you expect to find in a hardware store.”
